Conference MakeIT 2021

Dear presenters,

Last year’s pandemic didn’t stop us from organizing the MakeIT 2020 conference, which was delivered virtually. Given the positive feedback we received from both participants and speakers, we will certainly keep the elements of the virtual conference, but we still want to be able to hold at least a hybrid conference, where some of the topics could be delivered in person and on site. This way, we can combine the best of both worlds by inviting top lecturers, who cannot attend the conference in Slovenia. At the same time, live presentations can be delivered, thus providing a better understanding and relaxed debate after the lecture.

MakeIT 2021 will cover the following topics:

  • Cloud & DevOps
  • Java 
  • Database 
  • Database Development 
  • Data Analytics 
  • Customer references and testimonies
  • Methodologies and culture

 Anyone who would like to present an interesting topic which doesn’t fit in any of the above listed areas, is also encouraged to submit an abstract.

Presentation format and length

Slovenian and English are the two official conference’s languages. Please deliver the presentation in the language you choose when submitting the abstract. You can submit presentations of a standard duration of 45 minutes. In case you need a longer slot, double-slot lengths are also available. For technical in-depth presentations, or workshops, there are also some 2 or 3-hour slots available.


Abstract submission and deadlines

In order to submit your abstract, please use the submission form. When submitting the abstract, please specify the presentation title, a short description (up to 1000 characters), its desired length and difficulty level, and your short biography.

The deadline for submitting the abstracts is Sunday, June 27th. 2021 inclusive. The abstract selection process is expected to be completed till Saturday, July 17. 2021.


Obligations and benefits for the speakers

In case the submitted abstract is selected, the speaker is required to:

  • prepare and submit a preliminary presentation in PPT and/or PDF format
  • deliver the presentation within the above mentioned time limits following the Conference's schedule

The speaker whose talk will be included in the conference schedule obtains a free registration fee for the entire conference. The free registration fee applies to the main speaker or author (in case there is more than one author of the presentation) and is non-transferable. In case the conference will physically take place in Portorose, traveling costs to the conference venue and overnight stay are not covered.
